Diagnosis & Treatment

We offer a variety of Sports Medicine, Arthroscopic, Open and Robotic Joint Replacement procedures, but we will need to conduct a series of comprehensive tests to determine the best solution for you. This process starts with meeting our Physician Assistant at the beginning of your consultation to review your information and discuss your goals. Next, you asked about prior imaging studies (X-rays, MRIs, CT Scans, Bone Scans, etc.) to determine if you need new, more recent studies, different studies, or if we can use what you already have. This enables us to gain more information on your orthopaedic and musculoskeletal health. Then, the doctor will meet with you, review your imaging studies, complete your exam and provide you with a diagnosis. If surgery is indicated, the doctor will help you select the best option for a long-term results. If the plan is for more conservative, non-surgical rehabilitation, you can schedule your physical therapy in our office with our independent physical therapist or chiropractor on site.

Please note: Each practitioner at Robotic Orthopaedic Institute at the Coral Desert Health Center in St George, Utah, is an independent practitioner co-located at the Institute for patient convenience and interdisciplinary care continuity. You are always free to elect to use other practitioners of your choosing to carry out your prescribed physical therapy, chiropractic, home health, or massage therapy treatment.  We also welcome second surgical opinion opportunities.
